4 of 16

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but ugly is pretty universal. Every year, the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California shows the difference. We’re talking tongues bigger than ears, hairdos that make paw-in-the-light-socket seem well groomed, eyes that absolutely refuse to look the same direction. The winner takes home a thousand bucks and a trophy and proves that all dogs are good dogs, even if they do look like leftover parts from Frankenstein’s lab. sonoma-marinfair.org
